Hi all

I took delivery of a CSP python, as a upgrade to my Empi/ssp merged system.  However its not even close to fitting.  The muffler fouls the rear tyre and it wont fit due to the Rear Disk caliper. I messaged CSP prior to ordering to check fitment with my mods and the told me it would fit but that it would close and they have members cars that run a similar setup.   The muffler would need about 2inchs coming coming off and it needs tucking closer to the engine.   Really not impressed given the price point.  Just wondered if anyones run into this issue as i cant imagine its just me.

If it doesnít fit, send it back for a refund, if it was a lot cheaper I would take it on the chin and modify but thatís a premium price/product

Thanks, yeah i have messaged them to try and see if i can send it back, not sure how they will react though.  It was only dry tested on a brand new motor, none of the gaskets are even compressed and the motor wasn't even started up.  But yeah as you say, i really didnt expect to have to modify by that much to make it fit given the price point.

Mine did sort of the same thing (a few years ago now) ....I don't have disks , it fowled the tyre though .
 I made up a wedge shaped spacer to fit the mufler flange , it was about 10mm going down to 0mm 
 it kicked the back end of the muffler in a couple of inches , it's been on there for years .

That does sound like a good solution to the tyre problem, that hadnt crossed my mind. i think unfortunately the brake calipers are too large to clear it even with a mod such as that. Only way i can see it working is to cut down the muffler intake just after the collector and shorten the whole lot.
